I would like to learn more from real-world researchers about the apps or web tools you use.

I’m planning a workshop on optimizing academic workflow and am looking for your recommendations for effective and reliable academic organization web tools.
What tools or apps do you use for being alerted to new research, keeping track of PDFs and non-PDF sources, annotating articles, organizing notes, outlining, and/or setting up productive writing environments? (plus any other steps that are critical to you)
I’d prefer to stick to free, web-based services that can be used on any device, but I’m more interested in combinations of tools that work well together, e.g. When I read an article, I take notes using Notesterrific*, save the annotated PDF in my Zippero* library, and then use the Citey plug-in* in Google Docs to import the citation information into my paper.
*No such thing.
